Ariana DeBose fails to launch. New movie flops massively.

Guess it's back to the chorus where you belong.

What an unfortunate promo shot, she looks mildly retarded.

It just isn't happening for her, is it? I feel bad for the beautiful Chris Messina, whose shitter I'd turn inside out with my tongue. I wonder if the Sandler space movie will bomb as well, although it's on streaming only.

It reminds me of that retard character Ricky Gervais did a decade ago now, which for some bizarre reason went on for two full seasons and featured bus campaigns with that face plastered all over it, made me so uncomfortable at the time. And now DiCaprio is about to get an Oscar for something similar in Killers, plus ça change...

You are a true retard, R28. I am not an Elordi fangirl in the slightest. I have been a registered Democrat my entire life. I am white, though, so I am a racist slavedriver who wants to lynch all POC, of course.

When she won the Oscar, every headline was about her “historic” win as a “queer” POC rather than the performance or even the film. There were far better performances given by virtually all of her competition that year. It was a PR token win for the Academy so they could try to make people forget about “Oscars so white”.’

I saw it. It was a taut, suspenseful thriller, shifting political tensions on Earth to the claustrophobic confines of the International Space Station. The film examines human nature and who we truly are when a catastrophe occurs and our survival instinct kicks in. The problem is marketing. It’s a genre picture, but it’s not sci-fi, not horror, not action, however it does have a bit of all those elements. It’s a drama about existential dread, paranoia, hate, anger, love, loyalty, betrayal. I enjoyed it, but who the heck is the target audience for this movie? It would have probably worked better as a play.

by Anonymousreply 37January 20, 2024 11:25 PM

The movie is so bad. I don’t understand why people are trying to make her a thing. She fully lacks charisma. She is entirely implausible as a scientist who would be sent to the International Space Station. She cannot carry a movie. She is not a box office draw. And the movie is too bad. Everyone looks like they’re floating around on strings attached to their belts. John Gallagher Jr and Chris Messina and the Russians are far more compelling.

You can be half white and half Puerto Rican and still be a n*gger in white peoples eyes.

Whites go by Klan / Nazi ideology on race and skin color and etc.

I don’t even think they see Prince Harry’s kids (who are only a quarter black) as white.

They’re not pure!!

So weird! In order to be white you have to be “pure”.

And these are the same whites that complain about cultural appropriation and reverse racism and yada yada yada and they’re the worst offenders of them all.

So, she was cast in the lead of a space movie because of her immense drawing power and not the fact that they wanted to be " creative" and cast a black/ Latina, queer woman? But, tokenism is the correct term.
